Read Ellie, Engineer Online Free - The hilarious and smart start of a series about a girl who loves to build—STEM-powered, creative fun for girls.
Ellie is an engineer. With a tool belt strapped over her favorite skirt (who says you can’t wear a dress and have two kinds of screwdrivers handy, just in case?), she invents and builds amazing creations in her backyard workshop. Together with her best friend Kit, Ellie can make anything. As Kit’s birthday nears, Ellie doesn’t know what gift to make until the girls overhear Kit’s mom talking about her present—the dog Kit always wanted! Ellie plans to make an amazing doghouse, but her plans grow so elaborate that she has to enlist help from the neighbor boys and crafty girls, even though the two groups don’t get along. Will Ellie be able to pull off her biggest project yet?
Illustrated with Ellie’s sketches and plans, and including backmatter with how-tos, this is full of engineering fun!

I am so in love with this book! I just adored Ellie and I am so glad that this is going to be a series.

Girls will love reading about the interesting things in which Ellie and her friend Kit involve themselves. Most of it is pretty standard tween stuff but some of it is pretty much off the wall because Ellie is quite an unusual girl. She envisions solutions and those solutions are things she makes...

I love Ellie's personality and the idea behind the book... that we can all be ourselves and do things that we like to do, o...

Young Emily (whose dad built her a kid-sized tool bench) would have loved this book. Adult Emily (who recently brought her power drill to work to build a bookshelf) DID love this book!
Ellie is now my inspiration, building clever projects from nothing, and bringing all the neighborhood kids (girl...
